Sorry guys, this new job is kicking my ass. Haven't had a chance to brew since August let alone time to pretty up the keezer.

I was out of town for three out of four weeks in September and my wife was out of town the remaining week so I had to take care of the kids.

But, the keezer has been operational and dispensing beer while I am here. It doesn't appear as though I have any CO2 leaks and the compressor hasn't **** the bed. I should also say that our Labor Day party went over well and the keezer was a big hit. The pork was pretty good too.

Same old story, work is still kicking my butt and I haven't brewed since November.

My wife got me some Perlick faucets and shanks for Christmas so I'm not having to use the picnic faucet now at least. I have come to the conclusion though that I am going to need to make a new collar for it. Because of the hinge design of the freezer it puts a lot of pressure on the collar when it is opened and closed. So in a way it's kind of lucky that I wasn't able to complete the thing last fall and make it pretty since I would just have to start all over again anyway.

I promise though, I will update this thread when I get back on this project.
